"Some very strange things have happened to us during the last months, and we feel we should write them down while they're fresh in minds. It's got to be written down now before John and I mature and repress the whole thing. . . . John has compassion deep inside of him, which is the real reason we got involved with the Pigman. Maybe at first John thought of it all simply as a way of getting money . . . but the second we met the old man, John changed." -- Lorraine
In this unflinching account of a very unusual friendship, Lorraine Jensen and John Conlan, two high-school sophomores, are determined to tell the whole sad, zany story of Mr. Pignati, the Pigman.
